I am pleased to welcome Clio as a sponsor of iPhone J.D. Clio offers web-based practice management, time & billing and client collaboration services (including document management) for small and mid-sized law firms. When you use Clio, your important client data is securely accessible anywhere that you have Internet access. Of course that means that you and everyone in your law firm can use a PC or a Mac. But even on an iPhone, you can log in to the Clio mobile interface.
You can use the Clio mobile interface to do virtually everything you can on a computer — tracking time, tasks, expenses, documents, etc.
The few tasks that you cannot do from the mobile interface (such as creating a new matter) are the tasks that you are unlikely to want to do on the road. But even then, if you really needed to you can switch to the full desktop view of Clio from the mobile version and do anything you could do at your desktop.
You can also connect your Clio Calendar to the Calendar app on the iPhone with just a few simple steps. You can also sync your Clio calendar and Contacts to your iPhone via Google. And you can also use Clio Sync for Outlook to access your Clio calendar, contacts and tasks with Microsoft Outlook, even if you are offline. Plus, you can sync your iPhone/iPad with Outlook so that Clio is synchronized with both Outlook and your iPhone/iPad. Clio also offers e-mail integration so that you can easily associate an e-mail (using Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Gmail) directly with a matter.
If you have been thinking about trying cloud-based practice management, Clio offers a free 30 day trial so it is easy to find out if Clio will work for you and your law firm.
